Did a 10 inch Amazon Kindle Fire tablet appear in a television ad?

Did a 10 inch Amazon Kindle Fire tablet appear in a television ad?
Later in the day on Thursday, Amazon is expected to introduce some new products including a sequel to the popular Amazon Kindle Fire. The low-priced tablet was sold out last week after capturing 22% of the tablet market, according to Amazon. After a summer full of rumors about a larger-sized version of the tablet, the last word we had was that there was no model with a 10 inch screen and that Amazon would be introducing two 7 inch models instead. One would be a direct sequel to the original Amazon Kindle Fire with a low-price and a new UI. The second would be a higher priced version with a faster processor, more storage, volume controls and a camera.

If there is no 10 inch model, you might wonder what a tablet with what appeared to be a 10 inch screen was doing in an ad Amazon ran during Wednesday's season opener between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys. The first device in the ad appeared to be a Amazon Kindle Reader with E Ink and a back lit screen.

The denial that a 10 inch model is coming can be nothing more than a smokescreen. We saw that with Wednesday's introduction of the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD after we heard denials that such a model existed.

Hold on, only a few more hours and we should know for sure what Amazon has in store for us.
